BEACHES


Pissouri beach has fine, golden sands, multicoloured small pebbles, and its clean waters are relatively calm. Its surroundings are further enhanced by the spectacular white cliffs of Cape Aspro (Cape ‘white’) on either side, making it one of the most picturesque coastlines on the island. 


Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, sun beds, umbrellas, water sports and a beach volleyball court. There are five public footpaths, with two of them offering disabled access.


The west end of the bay leads to the headland of Asprorotsos (‘white rock’) that protrudes from the sea. At its end, there are small, sandy coves. The views from the top are spectacular, whilst you may also get a glimpse of the wild birds that visit the area, including falcons. The beach is often a breeding ground for sea turtles.


The nearby area has a variety of restaurants, cafes, kiosks and shops. The village of Pissouri itself is also worth visiting and retains its charming, traditional character.


Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April - October, 09:00 - 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.



AVDIMOU

Avdimou - Just outside Pissouri is a quiet little sandy beach.

At one end there is Melanda Beach fish restaurant and at the other is the Kyrenia Beach bar and restaurant. In between is a long beach of mainly sand and pebbles.

Windsurfing and kitesurfing can also be enjoyed here.

Facilities on the beach are limited with sunbeds and toilets available at both restaurants.

There are no lifeguards stationed on this stretch of coastline.

KOURION

Located 15 minutes from Pissouri, Kourion beach is about 1 km long and is particularly striking with its natural palette of colours, and a regal and ancient history.

Its designated swimming area has an exceptionally wide shore, comprised of sand and pebbles. The seawaters are crystal-clear and varying shades of blue that beautifully contrast with the surrounding white hills. Windsurfing and kitesurfing can also be enjoyed here.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and several fish taverns. Within a short distance (about 1 km) there are convenience stores, a children’s playground and accommodation.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April - October, 09:00 - 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.

One of the island’s most famous archaeological sites - that of ancient Kourion - is close by and well worth a visit, especially for its magnificent Greco-Roman amphitheatre where cultural events are still held to this day.

CORAL BAY

A coast that ranks amongst the loveliest of the region.

Located in the Pafos (Paphos) region in Pegeia - a thriving tourist resort - the 500-metre long, Coral Bay Beach is considered to be one of the loveliest coasts of the area.

The sands are deep golden, and the clean seawaters here are calm and shallow, making it a popular choice for all, including families with children. The beach is enclosed by a pair of limestone headlands and has abundant greenery, further enhancing its beauty.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, dustbins, recycling bins and water sports. There are a variety of restaurants, fish taverns, cafes, bars, kiosks and accommodation in the area.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April 15 - October 31, 11:00 - 17:30.

APHRODITE'S ROCK

Aphrodite’s mythical birthplace ‘Petra tou Romiou’ is an interesting geological formation of huge rocks along one of the most beautiful coastlines on the island, located on the southwest coast of the Pafos (Paphos) district.

According to the legend, the Ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty - Aphrodite - was born of the sea foam here. Legend tells that she rose from the waves and was escorted on a shell to this particular beach.

The giant rock formations, which are seen at the same location are linked with another - more recent - legend which tells that the Byzantine hero Digenis Akritas heaved them there to keep the Saracens Arabs (7th-10th centuries) at bay. The name of Petra tou Romiou (‘rock of the Greek’ in Greek) comes from the hero.

It is said that in certain weather conditions, the waves rise, break and form a column of water that dissolves into a pillar of foam. With imagination, this momentarily looks like an ephemeral, evanescent human shape. Other popular myths tell that swimming around the rock three times will bring various blessings, including eternal youth and beauty, good luck, fertility and true love.
